The second elegant and gorgeously written historical novel from new author Michelle Diener, featuring King Henry VIII's deadliest courtier and a royally commissioned artist caught in a web of Tudor court intrigue.

A priceless jewel. A royal court rife with intrigue. A secret deal, where the price of truth could come too high . . .

The personal artist to King Henry Tudor, Susanna Horenbout is sought by the queen and ladies of the court for her delicate, skilled portraits. But now someone from her past is pulling her into a duplicitous game where the consequence of failure is war. Soon, Susanna and her betrothed, the King's most dangerous courtier, are unraveling a plot that would shatter Europe. And at the heart of it is a magnificent missing diamond. . . .

With John Parker at her side, Susanna searches for the diamond and those responsible for its theft, their every step dogged by a lethal assassin. Finding the truth means plunging into the heart of the court's most bitter infighting, surviving the harrowing labyrinth of Fleet Prison--and then coming face-to-face with the most dangerous enemy of all.
